on jobs and taxes. >> president obama says he's creating jobs. but he's really creating debt. the facts are clear. obama's four deficits are the four largest in u.s. history. he's adding almost as much debt as all 43 previous presidents combined. and over 30 cents of every dollar obama spends is borrowed, much of it from countries like china. he's not just wasting money; he's borrowing it and then wasting it. we can't afford four more years. >> why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because, according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class, or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here, how can we ever trust him here? >> brown: meanwhile, on the fox news channel last night, romney reversed course on his remark that 47% of americans don't pay taxes and, in his words, are dependent on government, so he couldn't worry about them and their votes. >> in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about the 100% and
, tax code changes imminent at some time, and a global market looking reasonably unsteady. if you think about the advisor view, it's a long one. they give assurance to their clients but we're finding all-time lows in the assurance they're going to need to provide to clients. we're seeing client advisors, and advisors tightly aligning around the long term plan. it's a little more bullish than the bearish sentiment we've been seeing. >> susie: meanwhile, in this period of upcertainly, take a look at what some of the investment choices have been, saying less money, and small cap stocks going into etfs, real estate and cash. what are your thoughts on this? >> the advisors are keenly focused on providing liquidity and transparency for clients. at the same time they're doing that, they need to bring a little more income into the portfolio. so you're starting to see alternatives. register alternatives, and real estate investment trusts. >> this is the first time since we've been doing the survey when you asked investors about the american dream, and whether it's achieveable or not, and two thi
